Jorma Kaukonen Revisits His Folk Roots : NPR Music

Jorma Kaukonen Revisits His Folk Roots : NPR Music:
"Weekend Edition Saturday, March 14, 2009 - Singer and guitarist Jorma Kaukonen first found fame with a band that exemplified the psychedelic '60s: Jefferson Airplane. His hypnotic guitar licks — which can be heard in the opening strains of Jefferson Airplane's 'White Rabbit' — earned him a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the most distinctive soloists and acoustic players in rock history. Years after living the life of a rock star, Kaukonen is returning to his blues and folk roots on his new album, River of Time."
